- Wedding: September 2010
Well, we’re back from the Royal Belize. Oh my gosh was it ever complete paradise!!!! We had 10 days of sitting on hammocks, snorkelling, jetskiing (well, DH jet skiied, I stayed in the hammock), eating eating eating, reading, sleeping, playing cribbage and enjoying being totally disconnected from everyone in the world. The staff on the island was amazing, I can’t speak highly of them enough. Anything we could have wanted or needed was at our fingertips. The food was amazing. The weather was perfect. We had Tropical Storm Matthew blow through on our second last day, but it wasn’t so awful. Just wind and big waves in the morning, the afternoon was sunny blue skies and swimming again! We loved every single second of it and I can hardly wait to go back!!!
My favourite hammock.
DH says this is a photo of all his favourite things: Me, jetski, and our favourite swimming spot.
Our spa day in nearby Hopkins. We had 90 minute massages out on the dock overlooking the ocean. Heaven anyone?!
We had a fancy dinner night, and for dessert we were lead over to a little floating dock for champagne and fireworks! It was amazing!!!
The dining palapa at night.
Enjoying a sunny afternoon swimming, reading, relaxing.
The view from our favourite post breakfast chairs in the main palapa every day. So beautiful.

I’ll just note to anyone who’s thinking of doing the same, that DH and I loved every second of our honeymoon, but a private island experience may not be for everyone. We were the only ones on the island other than the staff, so it was very quiet, very isolated, very relaxing. If you’re high stimulus kind of people, this is likely not the right trip for you. We went snorkelling and kayaking a couple times, but mostly just stayed on/around the island. If you get bored easily you’d likely be better picking a larger resort with more activities, day trips, etc. This is definitely a low activity, totally veg out type of honeymoon, which happened to be exactly what we were looking for and needed!!
